Temporary event formats

**update: Welsh Government guidance has now changed allowing us to expand the types of events that we can run. For the latest info, please see this blog post. Thank you**

To fit with new Welsh Government guidelines,  we’ve adapted our event formats to run events for one household or extended household “bubble” at at time.

So this is a unique opportunity for you to book a private session with us with a dedicated instructor, until we can increase our event numbers and take group bookings again. We’re running events for couples, small families & extended household “bubbles” – so there’s something for everyone.

Temporary lowering of age limits – great news for the kids!

As all of our “household only” events will require adults to be present & our group numbers will be small, it means we’re able to temporarily lower the age limit for some of our activities.

Autism friendly bushcraft & archery sessions in Bridgend

Come & join us for some bushcraft & archery fun in Bridgend with our autism friendly events.

We have experience working with children and adults on the autistic spectrum through our work with schools and community groups. We’d like to make our sessions more accessible. So we’re trialling some autism friendly bushcraft & archery events, which you can book on to individually. And we’ll make them a regular event if there’s interest and demand for them.

Events are 1.5 hours and tickets are £15. You can buy tickets on Eventbrite here:

Springing into March with outdoor learning sessions at YBC Bridgend

After the end of a very wet February, we’re hoping that Spring is now here. And that March brings some better weather!

It’s been a lovely, fresh day today. And the end of another awesome day at YBC Bridgend running outdoor learning bushcraft sessions.

Today we’ve been honing our basic bushcraft skills and working as a team. We’ve had the kelly kettle challenge, den building, and fire lighting with flint and steel. And we filled up the log store ready for next week’s sessions (we’re prepared!) Great work everyone, see you next week 🔥

If you’re looking to take learning outdoors, drop us a line to start planning your school’s sessions with us 👍
